First Hand Woman

First Hand Woman

Set within a woman's heart and mind, FIRST HaND WOMaN, is an exhilarating 5-woman journey through heartache and healing, as told by the boisterous and unapologetic stages of grief. Join Denial, Bargaining, anger, Depression and acceptance as they unravel the secrets and truths of a love story gone bad. as the play progresses, layers of this woman's truth, and the realities of the relationship with her lover and with herself are poignantly and sometimes joyfully peeled away. Thus revealing someone who is seeking the redemption and reconciliation of her fragmented self. The characters of this story represent a community of archetypes that speak to the experiences of love, loss and recovery. CaUTION: Show contains spontaneous simulated ORGaSMS!

Winner of the Chapters Best text Award At the St. Ambroise Montreal Fringe festival, "This five-woman show is A breath of fresh reality-filled Air. It's not just the Alternative to the Sex And the City movie; it's the real thing. The show is five women in one woman's mind. They each represent An emotion After A bad break-up: Denial, bargaining, Anger, depression And Acceptance. It's in-your-face raw emotions And you will laugh with them And cry with them, especially if you can see yourself in one of the characters, which some women certainly will. The use of dance And movement, Allegory And humour, And tears And rage All feels natural And real And yet incredibly entertaining. Nothing feels Affected or fake with these extraordinary five Actors." - Brett Bundale [The Gazette - June 2008]
